These are incredibly easy. No “cooking” involved. There are so many possibilities with these chocolate truffles. You can add various flavorings and liqueurs to the mix or dip them and decorate them in whatever you like.

I made these rolled in cocoa powder, powdered sugar and finely ground walnuts. They are so pretty and impressive – a perfect addition to your holiday cookie platter.
